Carpentry in Denmark and Europe.

The carpentry trade in Denmark and Europe.

The Danish word 'carpenter' comes from Saxon medieval languagecarving covers' that was used between the years 1100-1600, and from the Old Norse word 'snitch’ which means to ‘cut off’.The English word for joiner 'Joiner' very descriptively embraces the many traditions for joints without the use of nails or screws, which many carpentry traditions make use of.

The carpentry trade is full of history and tradition. All over the world you can enter a church and see examples of the rich history and breadth of the carpentry trade, and you can follow the development history of the carpentry trade in the various beautiful interiors made of wood, from pews to pulpits. (www.buildingconservation.com) In modern times you know enough mostly for carpentry from furniture production in popular parlance, but carpenters can specialize in everything from boat building to making pianos.

Carpenters draw on the traditions that have been passed down for generations within the area they work with, and can make tailor-made, high-quality solutions that have stood the test of time. Special tools from the history of carpentry are still used by carpenters to this day, such as planers, saws and tuning irons.

 Copenhagen's Carpenter's guild able to f.eks. dates back to 1554 (www.snedkerlauget.dk).

Carpentry and carpentry Worldwide.

Woodworking in other parts of the world is also characterized by the local traditions of craftsmanship, materials and tools. Chinese dynasties have had distinctive carpentry techniques with deep carvings to depict fauna and flora.Japanese traditions include the herringbone plank without the use of nails, which has been advantageous to use in an area with many earthquakes, as such wooden joints can absorb shocks to a greater extent (www. buildersacademy.com.to).
